Healing and Wholeness

Jesus heals woman

This has been a rough 15 months, and while there is light at the end of the tunnel, knowing that there are some who are unable to be vaccinated while COVID-19 continues to mutate and attack is disheartening to say the least. If you are like me, perhaps you are in need of healing and a sense of wholeness in your life. It might be because of a spiritual need, like a loss of hope, or an emotional need, like pervasive anxiety. It might be because of a physical need as we read in our Gospel from Mark this Sunday. There a woman finds healing by touching Jesus’ cloak, and a girl is restored to life when he takes her by the hand. In both cases a boundary is crossed: in Jesus’ time the hemorrhaging woman was considered ritually unclean, polluting others by her touch, and anyone who touched a corpse also became unclean. As we heard last week, in Mark’s gospel Jesus breaks down barriers, from his first meal at a tax collector’s house to his last breath on the cross as the temple curtain is torn in two. We dare to touch Jesus in our “uncleanness” and to live as a community that defines no one as an outsider. Crossing such a barrier makes us vulnerable, and yet, it is through such a crossing that we find healing and wholeness. Join us this Sunday for a special liturgy of healing for you, our community, and our whole world for there is but one name given to us that grants health, wholeness, and salvation, Jesus Christ, our Lord!
